Spurs fans react on Twitter to Chris Powell's emotional interview
A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted after Spurs posted a superb interview with Chris Powell on Twitter in which he outlined just how much he loves the club.
Powell, of course, is working in North London as assistant to interim boss Ryan Mason.
The former England international enjoyed an outstanding playing career, representing his country on five occasions. He has also managed a number of sides, including his old club Charlton.
However, it would appear that few moments in his career mean more to him than working with Tottenham.
Spurs posted an interview with the 51-year-old on Twitter this week. And in the video, he shared just how special it is to be at Tottenham.
Powell suggested that he attended his first Spurs game back in 1983. And he shared some of the heroes he has had along the way. Gareth Bale received a mention.
He described working with the club as an honour. So it is no surprise that plenty of supporters are over the moon to hear Powell’s comments – with many previously unaware of his love for the club.
Tottenham have put together a coaching team consisting of several figures who adore the club. And several fans have urged Spurs to keep the likes Mason, Powell and Ledley King around once their next appointment has been made.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Tottenham fans were saying about Powell’s interview…
Love this. Had no idea he was a proper Spurs man. #COYS

Regardless of how the results pan out, this is undoubtedly the most wholesome coaching team we’ve ever had, and I, for one, am all for it.

This is brilliant.
I really like that Powell, King and Mason are all lifelong Spurs fans and they’re clearly thrilled to be there.
I’m sure they’ll do all they can to help the team finish as high up the table as possible 🤞
